SITE RECORDING WORKSHOPS
Join us to find out how to research and record First World War remains in your area using our toolkit and app to share your knowledge with your local Historic Environment Record and display your research on our UK map of sites.
You don’t need to be an archaeologist or have experience of fieldwork to take part. The workshop will be of interest to family and local history groups, First World War Centenary projects and interest groups and everyone interested in the impact of the Home Front on the places we live in today.
This day school will:
• Get you actively involved with the Home Front Legacy 1914-18 project to share your local knowledge for future generations
• Share the project toolkit and resources to use within your own projects, or to start one up
• Enable you to start discovering your local First World War surviving sites, structures
and buildings using online resources.
• Give you the skills and confidence to share your learning with your community group
• Provide the forum to share your projects and to meet potential partners.
Home Front Legacy Day Schools Programme
More than 100 people have joined our ten Home Front Legacy day schools across England during 2015
As a result more than 200 sites have been added by individual researchers.
More than 800 sites have been added through dedicated projects such as Anthony Firth’s East Coast War Channels and Jane Phimester’s First World War Wireless Stations in England. Both research reports have have been produced for Historic England.
The day school programme for 2015 is now at an end. Watch out for news of 2016.
